Hyung-Geun Park is has been active as an artist both at home and abroad by working on series of photographic works, such as Untitled and Tenseless, which create surreal and ambiguous narratives by revealing the boundaries between reality and directing, real and fake, nature and city, and primitive and civilized with vibrant colors and images in a frame.
Park was selected to participate in the 2014 Les Résidences de PHOTOQUAI, in which Musée du Quai Branly in Paris selects and supports artists every year. As part of the program, he worked on Doomangang/Tumen Project, which is to be showcased at the museum this year.
